The Successful Mindset of An Athlete
with Justin Deal
a Bent On Better series
“Take it one decision at a time.”
In this session of the Bent On Better podcast, where better means becoming the best you in health, fitness, and overall wellness, my guest is the Justin Deal. In this episode, we discuss The Successful Mindset of An Athlete.
Justin is a self starter. I met this 28 year old, married, beautiful baby girl having man, while standing in line for our snorkeling excursion on our honey moon cruise. I soon learned that this gentle giant of a man helped to build a payroll company, with his mom, from the ground up.
Justin believes athletes make for the best employee team members for multiple reasons, they’re used to the structured schedule and work well with a schedule, they are competitive which allows for overall growth (personal, and company), and athletes are loyal to their team (the company) in that they never give up or quit.
His company, Payday Payroll Resources has been in business for 5 years now and provides jobs for more than 13 employees (many of which are personal friends or family). Not only does his company help people by providing jobs, but they also help give back to our community and most importantly they bring a family feel into the business world where things can be so cutthroat and non-personal these days.
Justin is truly Bent On Better.
Some take-away points we discuss in this episode:
1. Developing a structured schedule is important
2. The natural drive and competitive nature of athletes helps in all aspects of success
3. Loyalty is one of the greatest attributes within athletics and business (and life)
Justin’s final thought, “everybody in the world is good at something, whether they know it or not. Everybody has something to offer.”
